Orthodox Kids Teach – YouTube series


The Orthodox Children’s Press and Workshop


Orthodox Kids Teach  – YouTube series

Let’s Make, Let’s learn about, Let’s talk about, and Orthodox Kids Explain

How it works:

Every week (or two weeks) there will be a new topic, question, or a series of questions for your child or children to share and record their organic thoughts about, and send in. The videos collected will then be edited and turned into a short video to share on our YouTube Channel.


– Ask your child the question(s) (or it may be a topic) and record their answer using your phone (see the link on how to record a sound bite. http://www.wikihow.com/Record-Audio-on-a-Mobile-Phone) It can be a video, sound bite, handwritten note, drawing, typed note, or feel free to be creative!!!!

–  Email it to tocpkids@gmail.com with the question/topic title in the subject line.  In the body of the email please include their first name and age.

– Videos will then be edited and added to our YouTube Channel.

Thank you so much and please let me know if you have any questions.

The Orthodox Children’s Workshop – Let’s Make: Vasilopita


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup orange juice

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp grated orange rind

powder sugar to top


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line the bottom of round 9 inch cake pan with wax paper and butter

Separate the eggs. In a large mixing bowl beat the egg yolks, butter, sugar, vanilla and orange rind together at medium speed until creamy. Add milk.  Stir baking soda into orange juice and slowly add that to the large mixing bowl. (At this point don’t worry if it separates, it’ll still come out) Then add the flour and baking powder into the bowl lowering your mixer speed to avoid a huge mess, then allow to combine at medium speed.

In a medium bowl whisk the egg white to form “stiff peaks”.  Mix in 1/2 the egg whites until combined, then gently fold in the second 1/2 eggs white to lighten up the batter a bit.

Pour your folded batter in your prepared pan. Take a thoroughly washed coin, wrap it in foil and slip it into the batter (2″ away from edge works well).  Bake in the oven for 30min.

After it is finished baking let it cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 min and then  remove from pan and allow to cool completely. After it is cooled dust with powdered sugar.

Enjoy (and be careful not to bite into the coin!)
